Roger Grant ( Murdock MacQuarrie ), foreman of the "Circle S" Ranch, is engaged to Isabel Norris ( Agnes Vernon ), the old ranch owner's daughter. Grant receives word that there may be an attack on the pumping station of the reservoir and that he should arm his cowboys to protect it until troops arrive. Nunez ( Lon Chaney ), a Mexican spy, learns of the existence of the letter and, that night, breaks into the ranch house to steal it. Isabel confronts him, and is knocked unconscious. Grant returns and finds Isabel on the floor and he is blamed for the assault. The cowboys chase after him, but Isabel awakens and goes after them. Meanwhile, the Mexicans have attacked the reservoir, but Grant battles them single-handed until Isabel and the reinforcements arrive. Nunez is captured and Grant is vindicated.
"The chief interest centers about an attack on the pumping station...There is good suspense toward the close of this and the climax is exciting." ---Moving Picture World
Sadly this short silent western/drama, produced by the Nestor Film Company, remains a lost film.
